Students learn the basic skills and strategy of net sports such as badminton, tennis, and volleyball. Each class begins with a physical fitness period, which includes a variety of exercises that help to develop abdominal and muscular strength, flexibility, and cardio-respiratory endurance. Each sport unit ends with an intramural tournament. The goals for each individual are to develop simple ways to stay physically fit, to learn how to play each game, to develop a lifelong enjoyment for the activities, to build confidence, and to reach one’s own potential as an athlete. Students learn about teamwork, perseverance, empathy, respect for each individual, and the importance of belief in oneself as a capable athlete.
